I find personal satisfaction in helping individuals in their fight for full and fair compensation. I also enjoy the trial process in a well-prepared case.
While it is critical to retain a skilled and experienced attorney to represent you, I find that educating my clients about the general requirements of the law helps the client make more informed decisions and provide me with the information needed to prove the claim.
All legal documents are prepared by the attorneys. Documents prepared by clients are reviewed by attorneys to obtain necessary information.
We have, on occasion, advised clients in prosecuting small claims or similar matters. However, we recommend that on substantial matters an attorney should be retained.
Prior to joining my current firm, I represented seriously injured parties through the law office of Nicholas I. Timko, P.C. for over ten years.
While obtaining my education, I worked in many different positions from paper boy and restaurant bus boy to sanitation worker and postal worker. I believe that all these experiences have shown me the value of hard work and taught me to respect everyone for their unique contribution to society. Since I represent individuals from all walks of life who have suffered serious injuries, I can understand their struggles and be a better advocate for them in court.
I believe that we provide the highest quality representation for our clients in a generally relaxed atmosphere. While not every case can result in a recovery, being fully prepared for every case we are not intimidated by the prospect of a trial and can get the most favorable settlement or verdict for our clients.Personal interests:
I enjoy all sports, especially skiing, scuba diving, bicycling and also theater, arts and reading.
